Mission

Engage, Explore & Empower
 

Strategic Objectives

  1. To arouse pupils’ curiosity about the things around them
  2. To stimulate pupils’ thinking and their interest through challenging and fun activities and thought-provoking questions
  3. To bring pupils’ learning experience beyond the classroom and equip them with skills to apply their knowledge and their experience meaningfully

Key Programmes 


Science Alive!
Science Alive! is a monthly pre-assembly programme (Wednesdays) that aims to enthuse and excite students in Science. Teachers will showcase interesting Science facts or demonstrations to arouse curiosity, interest and to engage students.

Eureka!

Eureka! is a fortnightly recess Programme (Tuesdays or Thursdays) that aims to engage students in Science hands-on activities in the canteen. Primary 5 and 6 Science Representatives or Environmental Champions will help the teachers to facilitate the activities such as conducting interesting experiments or demonstrations.



Hands-on, Minds-on!

Hands-on, Minds-on is a learning experience in Science where students explore Science concepts to build up on their knowledge and skills. It aims to make learning more authentic and give them a platform to experience the application of Science in daily life.

These experiences come in the form of experiments conducted in the Science Laboratory, out-of-classroom learning at the eco-garden and learning journeys to Science Centre, Singapore Botanical Gardens, Lee Kong Chian National History Museum of Biodiversity and many other partners in education.




Drama in Science

Drama in Science aims to help students visualise abstract Science concepts to deepen their understanding in Science and to develop the joy of learning for Science.

Examples of Drama in Science include the students role-playing as a water droplet that journey through the water cycle and also students taking on different roles such as heart valves or red blood cells to understand the process of gaseous exchange that takes place in the circulatory system.





ICT in Science

Information Technology (IT) plays an important role in learning. It encourages students to be self-directed and collaborative learners - taking responsibility for their own learning and empowering them in the learning process.

In Science, ICT tools such as Nearpods, Google docs, dataloggers and iPad applications are used to deepen understanding and give students an opportunity to interact and learn from their web sources through research, in the process, questioning the reliability of Science facts found in the World Wide Web.


Environmental Education Programme (EEP)

EEP aims to raise awareness about the importance of caring for the environment. Part of learning Science is to learn about the environment and how our actions affect the environment. Thus, to create such awareness, we celebrate Earth and Water Week to raise awareness about climate change, energy, food and water wastage, and conservation of wildlife and sea creatures. Students are also involved in a recycling programme, Green for Hope, a fortnightly collection of newspapers and plastic bottles.
